Pork loin with crackling, garlic mash and blueberry pie

I was away for a large part of the week so had a request for pork loin, cooked whole with crackling if possible for Sunday lunch.

I haven’t cooked anything for what feel like ages so went for a full on breakfast, there was bacon from the butchers, I did a test and put maple syrup on half of the rashes and not the other half, they came out so different I couldn’t pic’ a favourite.

I found some halumi cheese that I cooked as well, not enough for anything so thought might as well, it worked a treat.

Chipolata sausages are always lovely for breakfast, on toast with hot sauce, and today with halumi cheese as well, very nice!

After the breakfast we went for a walk. I went to Sweden this week for a quick visit and it is so much colder and wintery feeling still and it made me appreciate the London weather even more.

As a starter I made an avocado and grapefruit salad, it was light and a perfect starter to tease the taste buds but not to feel to full..

The pork loin was cooked in the oven and served with mushrooms provencale, garlic mash, broccoli and a tomato salad.

For once I had a craving for dessert. Normally I prefer cheese but I woke up this morning wanting, of all things, blueberry pie. I love when there is a nice crust and crunch and it was perfect, especially with whipped cream. I like to add toasted hazelnuts but had none at home so toasted sesame seeds and added to the dough and it made for a lovely crust.

Almost the whole pie went, it was quite small but still and I feel stuffed, ready to chill out and enjoy my Sunday evening!

  1. Those Provencal mushrooms look so good. The blueberry pie sounds great too.
